We wanted to make a bot simulating our friend.
What it does
The code is unfinished, however it renders an image of our friend using JavaFX. It is a chatbot and converses with a user.
How we built it
We used Java Spring to connect our various applications. We made the render of our friend's face using JavaFX. We are using an SPA as our front-end and IBM watson as our chatbot. We are using AWS to host, lightsale as our cloud computing platform, RDS to store our responses and response keys.
Challenges we ran into
As freshman we were to a large extent unfamilliar with the technologies we were using although we had some background it became difficult to work around roadblocks at our skill level.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are happy that we learned so much and at the very minimum finished some parts of the application.
What we learned
We all learned a lot more about our own work ethics and about the technologies we are using.
What's next for AIBot
We will finish the application and make it fully functional. We have no video unfortunately.
